Refresh Belfast - The State of Typography on the Web

An event that I was contacted about that I am going to attend

I was emailed about this event a couple of days ago and I have decided to sign up for it.

Very basically Christopher Murphy and Nicklas Persson are going to spend an evening (an evening on the 21st September in the Black Box in Belfast) talking about and showing us a few of the new typography-centred services that are floating about these days.

I just don't get typography, so hopefully it won't be too over my head but even more hopefully I hope to learn a lot from it.

For those of you who don't know about Refresh Belfast, here is some blurb from their site (2020 update: now offline).

Refresh is a monthly event for designers, developers, coders, geeks & nerds to get together to talk design, debate the web, share ideas and meet new & interesting people. Every third Monday of the month, we organise a couple of presentations from local industry experts to be enjoyed over a few beers in the The Black Box.

If anyone is free on that Monday and wants to come along they need to sign up in advance, it is completely free and the registration was insanely quick.  If you are coming along be sure to say hey!  I will be the one with the beard looking confused and angry!
